One of the big details coming out of the Rachel Dolezal race controversy is that the city of Spokane is actually investigating her for a potential code of ethics violation.
Dolezal currently serves on the city’s citizen police ombudsman commission, and according to KXLY, she identified herself as African-American on the application, despite having white parents who both said that their daughter is not actually black.
She was appointed to the board by Mayor David Condon, and in a joint statement with the council president, he said, “We are gathering facts to determine if any city policies related to volunteer boards and commissions have been violated. That information will be reviewed by the City Council, which has oversight of city boards and commissions.”
Meanwhile, earlier today the Spokane police suspended all its investigations involving Dolezal, including an incident where she says she received mail with hateful messages.
